On tap at some Irish bar in New York September 2013. Average beer only made better by the bar and the amosphere.

I try very hard to enjoy Smithwicks, only because it’s made by Guinness. In the end, it just doesn’t live up to the majesty of a good Guinness Draught. June 4th, 2013.

Very light malty aroma, but not much really going on. Crisp and refreshing, ok for hot days.

Pours a nice deep red colour, with an average head. Not an overly flavourful beer, but consistent.

tomer (1746) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Draught, creamy very long lasting, off white head, clear light brown to deep red colour, malty caramel aroma, biscuit caramel flavour with a hint of spice, quite smooth. Not too complex but very easy to drink.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy dark copper/orange/brown color with a one and a half finger white mushroom cap of a head. As the head died down, there was some nice clingy somewhat foamy lacing gracing the sides of the glass. The smell had a fairly rich dark nutty aroma with light gestures of caramel and toffee notes to blend and sweeten. The taste was sweet with a light nutty caramel/ toffee toastiness going on in there on the side. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat there but showed a decent smoothness to pervade throughout. Overall, for the style, this one is good for me, not bad at all. Pass the fish n ’ chips.
